Shrimp make interesting and colourful additions to an invertebrate or reef aquarium. Most Shrimp are scavengers that will eagerly accept small pieces of fish or shrimp in the home aquarium. Shrimp have a hard outer shell (carapace) that must be shed (moulted) for the shrimp to grow.

They vary in temperament from exceptionally peaceful such as the Saran Shrimp to notorious predators like the Mantis Shrimp. Research should be done carefully of which shrimp would be suitable for your marine tank.
